Matthew 7:14 (KJV) Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
The Lord inspired me to write the 8 Day Really Nourish Yourself Devotional:Change Your Food Life based on my personal experience in changing my food life. Changing your food life is hard. It is quite like entering through that narrow gate, and some bible versions say that the road is narrow, meaning not that many people can fit on it. It is a hard road , meaning not many will remain on it. Nonetheless, it leads to life.
8 Day Really Nourish Yourself Devotional Key Terms: Life and Food Life
Zoe: The God Kind of Life
When in the scriptures God talks about life, we know He is not just talking about existing. He is talking about what is referred to in Greek as Zoe. The definition of this word on BibleStudyTools.com includes such terms as
- “The absolute fullness of life, both essential and ethical”
- “Life real and genuine, a life active and vigorous, devoted to God, blessed”
The world has a more basic definition of life, so they (the healthcare industry included) are willing to accept something much less than whatGod promises us. We can live better than we do, and His word shows us what works we can do to perfect our faith when we are seeking Him for healing and better health.
It is with this spirit in mind that Really Nourish was born.
Food Life: Your REAL Diet
As long as we are defining terms, let’s talk about the concept of your “food life”. This is a term I started using that simply refers to the word diet in it’s original definition. My reasoning for coining it is that the word diet has been hijacked. It now refers to an industry that promotes programs of drastic, unsubstantiated, faddish and sometimes life threatening food life changes. These “diets” promise rapid results, placing unrealistic hopes on people whose body issues (both aesthetic and internal) make them easy prey for fear predators. This 8 Day Really Nourish Yourself Devotional is designed to show you from Bible scriptures how to make your own informed food life choices that will lead you to a sustainable plan and sustainable results.
In the end, your testimony will be another way to shine your light on someone else’s life!
The 8 Day Really Nourish Yourself Devotional: Eight days can change YOUR LIFE.
The apostle Paul speaks in his first letter to the church of Corinth and his letter to the Hebrews about levels of knowledge in scripture. We are going to follow that format here. The first 5 days of this devotional are “milk” days, like baby’s first food as they start a new life. Then we will transition into meat, or solid food, and get deeper into scripture and thought. The end goal is to prepare you to teach others around you what you learned.
Days 1-5: The “milk”
Days 6-8: The “meat”
